Paper Abstract

Dynamic arrays of nonlinearly coupled mode-locked laser oscillators offer a means of generating arrays of ultrashort optical pulses where the arrays are both susceptible to rapid reconfiguration in response to small externally introduced electronic signals and yet also stable against random perturbations. We examine one specific example where the pulses in the array can be approximated as lowest order, weakly coupled solitons, propagating on multicore optical fiber.
